On October 14 and 15, athletes will head to the hu Norcenni Girasole Village in Figline e Incisa Valdarno for the Inferno Mud 2023 obstacle race.
A 10-kilometre and 25-obstacle race will take place on the Saturday, while the Sunday sees a shorter three-kilometre and 12-obstacle version. Both events are open to amateurs and competitive athletes. Family fun is guaranteed on the Sunday with Inferno Kids for children between three and 12 years, whose 18-euro participation fee will be donated to charity. Want to have fun with friends? Sign up for the six-kilometre and 12-obstacle mud run in a group of three on the Sunday. Obstacle runners can expect weights to run with, cables to pick up and walls to scramble over, but the primary hurdle is mud. Competition is expected to be high with the participation of new world champions Gian Maria Savani and Francesca Dambrusco.
The Chianti edition follows hot on the heels of a snow edition in Trentino, a nature run in the Mincio Park near Mantua, a mountain version near Cuneo and a culture take around the ramparts of Siena’s Medici fortress.
